Environmentally Friendly, Biodegradable Plastic Water Bottles Now Available

BioGreen Bottles, the environmentally innovative plastic water bottle that is completely biodegradable once its drinking days are over, is now available nationally at mass retailers, in select markets across the country, making it easier than ever to go green. Manufactured by CalSprings, BioGreen Bottles were previously only available online, through Amazon.com and at selected cycling stores.

In addition to being biodegradable, BioGreen Bottles are reusable, recyclable, top shelf dishwasher safe, and BPA, DEHA and DEHP free. Just in time for summer, major retail chains now carry a variety of designs, colors and sizes from the BioGreen Bottle line, located in the sporting goods section, near the bicycles and biking accessories.

“It’s exciting that we are now able to nationally distribute the product in these major retail chains in addition to our online Amazon sales,” said Cal Springs President Steve Finch. “We’ve had great success with the online community and we’re glad to have the opportunity to expand to more of the general public.”

According to Finch, there is no need to feel guilty about drinking from a BioGreen Bottle, since the bottles contain EcoPure, an additive created by Albuquerque-based Bio-Tec Environmental. EcoPure enables the bottles to completely break down in landfills and compost piles into biomass and biogas. The biogas can then be harvested for energy use, and the biomass nourishes the soil.

“It can be difficult never to throw anything out, even for the greenest people,” Finch said. “Our hope is that these bottles can be a practical and affordable step to a greener lifestyle.”
